2019-09-27 Living with Cancer Day 932

Today was another good day. A repeat from yesterday, getting up at the normal time, doing the morning routine, and finally going downstairs. I was having some light dizziness, and my shoulder/neck pains were at a very low levels, but no stomach cramps. Everything else was fine. I had a light breakfast and was ready for my morning walk with Dean.

The morning walk with Dean was without any real problems. There was no shortness of air and my dizziness and stomach cramps were gone, however my shoulder/neck pain was at a very high level at the end of the walk. Getting back inside, I changed my top and put away the walking equipment to be ready for a long morning and afternoon of visitors.

It started with:

  • Dr. Ravi Arora, retired from Epic Care, he was one of the three doctors creating East Bay Medical Oncology and Hematology (EBMOH) group, which now is Epic Care. Dr. Arora dropped by for a short visit to see how I was doing. He told Dianne that I should join her when he sends an invitation for a dinner.
  • Next was my Friday lunch with my Ex-Premenos colleagues. We had a good chat, including Larry who checked in via FaceTime. Timing on this meeting was rather short since I was being picked up for my Eye Examine Appointment.
  • The Eye Examination was a bit longer than others, due to some things to be checked for about the last 10 years. The added items that were checked all look good. I am to return a year from today. I left with a copy of the eReport and ePrescription.
  • Getting back home, I was having my last appointment with my Home Care Nurse to put back the needle into my Power Port which is for my daily hydration and any associated blood draws.

By the time the last appointment with the Home Care was done, Dianne set me up for today’s Hydration, which will be done just about Dinner time to start.

There is not much to write about the rest of the day. It is routine by now. After having done the routine things, it was time for dinner. After dinner, we watched some TV until it was time to retire for the day.
